Former presidential candidate Herman Cain, reacting to a guest column in The New York Times that says Republicans only pretend to be receptive to black interests, calls the paper “racist.”

In a column Cain wrote for his website Caintv.com, the businessman first took issue with the column, written by Adolph Reed, professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania.

Reed “considers it a ‘puzzle’ that there are black Republicans, and writes off said black Republicans as ‘tokens’ who are deplorable,” Cain says. “That was pretty much the theme of Professor Reed’s rant in the Wednesday New York Times about the appointment of U.S. Rep. Tim Scott to replace U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina.”

How does the professor view black Republicans such as Scott and Cain? “Reed makes it clear that he considers black Republicans to be little more than Stepin Fetchits, soulless black people who are willing to serve the white master at the expense of their true brethren,” Cain writes.

Reed makes it sound as if blacks are a homogenous group whose interests are best served through government handouts. “He thinks black people need welfare, and can’t make it under the kinds of free-market policies advocated by the likes of Samuel Pierce, Clarence Pendleton, Clarence Thomas and Tim Scott. And Herman Cain.”

As for The times, “any newspaper that would publish a piece denigrating blacks as needing the benevolence of big government in order to serve their interests is obviously racist and deserves widespread censure for making such an insensitive and racially biased editorial decision,” Cain writes.

“It’s a shame the New York Times is such a racist newspaper.”
